Hunting violation costly

Category: 

A Hudson man has been fined $2,000 for a hunting offence under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act.

Ronald Elliot pleaded guilty and was fined $2,000 for unlawfully discharging a firearm from a vehicle.

He also received a four-year hunting suspension.

Court heard that back on Oct. 7, conservation officers contacted Elliot's hunting party on Altimeter Creek, north of Lac Seul, shortly after he had harvested a bull moose.

An investigation determined that Elliot shot a moose standing on the shore with a high-powered rifle while operating a moving motor boat.

Justice of the Peace Edith Baas heard the case May 17 in Sioux Lookout.
